Pitt-Greensburg's Summer Science and Math Experience (SSME) will mark its 10th anniversary this year.
Developed collaboratively by Pitt-Greensburg science and education faculty members, SSME seeks to inspire middle school students (going into 9th grade) to explore the wonder and excitement of the science and math fields.
This week-long residential program provides students with inquiry-based, hands-on learning opportunities to explore biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and other areas related to the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
Students from regional school districts are recommended for participation by their school principal, guidance counselor, and/or science and math teachers. A limited number of spaces are available for this program that is fully funded by the generous support of local foundations and corporations.
